Small woodland creation on your farm
Small woodland creation on your farm: sheep and trees Q&A
This online event focused on sheep and beef farmer Andrew Whiteford's experience creating a small woodland in his Dumfries and Galloway with the support of the Scottish Forestry Sheep and Trees grant.
This grant is aimed at small woodland creation (up to 50 hectares) and is unusual in that it can be used to fund infrastructure too.
We were also joined by woodland creation consultant Peter Atkinson and Woodland Officer Andrew Kitching of Scottish Forestry, to discuss:
- The benefits of incorporating small woodlands onto your farm
- How to get started
- Andrew’s experience and what he learned
- How it could work on your farm
